Mazza Chautauqua CellarsVerified Organization

A brief history

Our family goes back a long way here in the Lake Erie AVA, but trace our roots back just a bit further and you’ll end up across the Atlantic.
Perhaps that’s what drew us to this corner of the globe – a region that so closely resembles the terroir and growing conditions of Old World wine regions that there are as many European varietals as native vines that thrive in the local soil.

Mazza Chautauqua Cellars showcases what this region grows best, carefully crafted by a lineage of international winemakers who have chosen to bring their talents stateside to shape our local-meets-global collections.
